DAVID BONNICI FROM THE EDITOR

No politics, please t was rather disconcerting to see analysis of the recent local government elections in New South Wales focusing on their impact on state and federal politics. For someone who believes party politics should be banned from local government, I fear this could signal the beginning of the end of independent representation at local level. Councils are meant to be about grassroots politics, where people run to make their communities a better place. A council of independent peers generally ensures the community is well represented, but as we’ve seen in surrounding municipalities, party politics has a knack of hijacking this ideal. While candidates running under the Labor, Liberal or Greens flag provide an idea of the kind of policies they would adopt, we have to make sure that they will ultimately vote for what’s best for the people who voted for them rather than their party machine. There have been some excellent councillors who are members of political parties but have managed to remain largely independent. However, if political analysis continues to link local government with the state and federal sphere, the major parties will seek to have more influence in the result to ensure it doesn’t reflect poorly on their overall standing. Voters need to ensure their vote isn’t influenced by state or federal politics. There’s nothing wrong with voting for a candidate with party affiliations, but it would be a shame if they get in based on what’s happening in Spring Street or Canberra, rather than what they can offer Maribyrnong. ■ While the council elections won’t be decided until October 27, postal vote papers arrive in registered voters’ letterboxes this week. We’ve invited River and Stony Creek wards candidates to tell us what they feel are the biggest issues in Maribyrnong. See their profiles on pages 8-9.

Cuts a hammer blow for embattled west BY BENJAMIN MILLAR THE slashing of TAFE funding in the western suburbs will cause considerable harm to the area’s prospects, according to a new study. The Social Impacts on Melbourne’s West of TAFE Funding Cuts report by LeadWest finds the cuts are “of considerable significance”. Victoria University stands to lose $40 million in TAFE funding, one of the deepest cuts statewide. As reported by the Weekly, VU is slashing almost 80 courses and more than 100 teaching jobs and cutting a swathe through support

programs. The report questioned the cutting of training for low-skilled residents at a time of rising unemployment in Melbourne’s west. Melbourne’s west experiences unemployment of up to 11.6 per cent in Sunshine, and it has lower levels of year 12 completion than the state average, particularly in Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Melton and Wyndham. The report found unemployment was especially high among people born in nonEnglish-speaking countries (10.6 per cent). “Foundation training offered through VET [Vocational Education and Training] is a key enabler for this group to gain employment,’’ the

report stated. ‘‘While the government argues that it is substantially increasing . . . funding for vocational education, this is effectively an increase for private provision of training and a reduction in the public TAFE sector.” The funding shift also targets higher-level qualifications in specific trade areas at the expense of quality training for low-skilled workers. The report found school students and their families would also be hurt by the TAFE cuts through higher fees for the VET in Schools program. In the Brimbank-Melton area, almost 4000

students in VET courses face an increase in costs. Western Metropolitan Greens MP Colleen Hartland said TAFE enabled her to get a qualification as a mature-age student and escape lowskilled jobs. “If I wanted to study today, under Baillieu’s slashed TAFE system, I just wouldn’t be able to,” she said. A protest rally will be held in Footscray Mall at 12.30pm tomorrow. Friends of Victoria University spokesman Dave Kerin said a public forum would also be held at the Maribyrnong Council reception rooms from 6.30pm on October 17 to build a community campaign against the cuts to VU.

Living testament to the value of TAFE Ethiopian restaurant in Footscray, said the extra support in the early stages of Victoria University’s TAFE stream was essential. A report by LeadWest shows VU will no longer be able to subsidise these educational support programs due to the $300 million TAFE funding cuts. As well as the personal costs, Mr Abebe says the wider community will feel the impact. “In the long run, we will have uneducated people who can’t get a job.’’ He fears the cuts will lead to more social problems as young people denied work and education turn to crime. That view is shared by Annie Nash, manager of Flat Out, a support service for women leaving prison. She says $300 million of cuts from the TAFE system at the time of a $1 billion prison expansion is “political, cruel and defies logic”. — Benjamin Millar

WHEN Mulugeta Abebe lost his job during the collapse of budget carrier Impulse Airlines, he knew he was at a crossroads. “I wondered, what now? I realised that if I had an education background I could change jobs, but without that I could not.” More than a decade later, Mr Abebe (pictured) says a diploma in community development at TAFE was the first step in a journey that has led to rewarding roles — at Merri Community Health Services, as co-creator of 3CR’s Ethiopian Show, and as initiator of Negat, a magazine for Melbourne’s Ethiopian community. “Most people doing the course were from places like Vietnam, Cambodia and Sudan, people from all different places. It’s the best way for refugees or newly arrived migrants to make a step up when they come to the country.” Mr Abebe, who went on to gain a bachelor degree and run the Abesha

Laverton clinic hopes fall away

Just too much: Peter Knight says residents are losing trust in the EPA. Picture: Darren Howe

Action group rejects EPA â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;spinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY BENJAMIN MILLAR THOUSANDS of trucks using traffic-clogged Yarraville streets are creating concerning levels of noise, according to the Environment Protection Agency. Data collected from Francis Street in the first three month of a 12-month air and noise pollution trial shows average noise levels across an 18-hour period of about 77 decibels on weekdays and 73 decibels on weekends. The levels are above the 68-decibel threshold that triggers VicRoads to consider noisemitigation measures for roads built since 1979 (after Francis Street was built). Francis Street is used by more than 20,000 vehicles a day, including almost 6000 trucks. The EPA found that although noise is of above-average levels, vehicle emissions pose little risk to residents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a claim that has been denied by residents. Peter Knight, of the Maribyrnong Truck Action Group, said the EPA had put the

best possible spin on a clearly terrible situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is at best disingenuous. There are lots of instances on the EPA website where air quality in Yarraville is rated poor, but you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it from what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying now.â&#x20AC;? Last month, the Weekly told of a Council of Australian Governments report, stating that exposure to air pollution posed long-term risks to the health of children and infants. The study of 2860 children nationwide linked truck exhaust fumes with asthma, bronchitis and impaired lung function. EPA strategic relations director Matt Vincent said while air pollution levels measured in Yarraville fell below air quality guidelines, they were slightly elevated compared to Footscray and Alphington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Small particle or PM2.5, nitrogen dioxide and benzo(a)pyrene results were all below relevant standards.â&#x20AC;? Mr Knight criticised the location of the monitoring station, claiming it had been deliberately placed away from the worst-affected areas.

An EPA spokeswoman said the site was chosen to be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;representative of residential sites in Francis Streetâ&#x20AC;? rather than show the highest impact of truck traffic. Mr Knight said residents were losing trust in the EPA as it showed itself to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;toothless tigerâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go and fine a private operator over this. The only people who can do something about the truck problem is the state government, so it looks like they are just doing the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bidding.â&#x20AC;? Freight traffic in Melbourne is set to explode from 2.5 million containers a year to more than five million by 2025. The government has canned the proposed Truck Action Plan of the previous Labor government, aimed at removing trucks from inner-west streets, instead pinning a solution to construction of the east-west link. Data from the EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12-month monitoring program will be compared with results from early studies in 2001 and 2002 at the completion of current testing.

A DOCTOR shortage in the inner-west is threatening the viability of a new community health centre. Members of the Westgate Health Cooperative, which operates clinics in South Kingsville and Newport, are backing away from leasing a new centre at Laverton, saying it will be impossible to recruit up to 10 doctors as originally planned. Co-op director Cornelius Chidlow said the medical centre, forming part of the $8.6 million Laverton Community Hub, would not be able to attract GPs even if its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;district of workforce shortageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; status was intact. Areas such as Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay have long faced GP shortages, placing additional pressure on already over-stretched hospital emergency departments. The federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;areas of needâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; classification â&#x20AC;&#x201D; removed from Laverton and surrounding suburbs in February â&#x20AC;&#x201D; would have allowed overseas GPs to be hired without fulfilling the 10-year moratorium (requiring that they work in areas with a shortage of GPs, mostly in outer suburbs and country areas). Mr Chidlow said the not-for-profit group could not even recruit doctors at its other clinics in South Kingsville and Newport. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One of the biggest game changers has been the removal of Laverton, along with all of Melbourne, from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;district of workforce shortageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We still have extreme difficulty in attracting GPs to service our existing membership. The proposed Laverton clinic will face similar problems.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Under the proposed 15-year lease, the co-op would pay $15,000 in the first year. In a letter to Hobsons Bay CEO Bill Jaboor, dated January 1, Mr Chidlow and fellow director Peter Kofoed state there is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a high probability of this venture failing, exposing the ratepayers of Hobsons Bay to the financial risk of having a defaulting tenantâ&#x20AC;? and could cause the demise of existing clinics. Mr Kofoed said a notice of motion would be raised at the co-opâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s October 18 annual meeting calling for it to cease plans to operate a medical clinic in Laverton.

INBRIEF Gunmen take extra gamble Police are hunting for two men after an armed robbery at a Braybrook betting agency on Sunday night. The two, armed with guns, took away a sum of cash from the agency at the corner of South Road and Ashley Street about 10.30pm. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000

The Footscray SES unit will hold an information session at its headquarters at 95 Sunshine Road, West Footscray, at 7pm on Monday.

Screw down number plate theft Footscray police and the Lions Club will join forces this Sunday to install one-way screws on number plates. Police say thefts of number plates account for about a third of all vehicle-related thefts. Police will install the screws for free in the car park of Bob Jane T-Marts, 157 Rosamond Road, Maribyrnong, from 10am-2pm.

Pat on the back for volunteers Victoria University’s Volunteer For You program has been awarded the ‘best event’ prize at an Australian Association of Campus Activities ‘campus link conference’. Student Life officer Cristyn Jenvey said the event involved more than 250 students and staff giving back to the greater Footscray community via a range of projects.

BY BENJAMIN MILLAR WHEN Yarraville social worker Zoe Hancock hops on her bike each weekday, it’s more than just the cheapest way to get to work. Her daily ride from Yarraville to the Royal Women’s Hospital in Parkville is a chance to experience one of her favourite activities and start each day on the right foot. “I love it. I’ve been on a bike since I was four years old, ’’ Ms Hancock says. ‘‘Riding is part of my fabric. You’re out in the fresh air, you feel good doing it.” At the end of the workday she finds the ride is a chance to clear her head and arrive home feeling good — whatever has happened through the day. “I’m a social worker and I find it is a very good way to break up the working day. It keeps me fit and it keeps me happy.” Ms Hancock is one of 150,000 people expected to ride next Wednesday on Ride2Work Day, Australia’ biggest celebration of getting to work by self-propulsion.

Bicycle Network’s Ride2Work co-ordinator Cory Boardman says people don’t have to wear lycra to ride to work. “Riding to work is for everyone, no matter what you wear. There are people in suits, in jeans, or in their exercise gear.” Ms Hancock said she had seen more people riding around Maribyrnong in recent years, taking advantage of better infrastructure, including new bike lanes. “There are still people who don’t like to ride on the roads, but I find in peak hour it’s not actually so bad as the traffic is moving more slowly, so I feel safer. I ride defensively; I keep an eye out on the traffic.’’ There remains one negative to riding for Ms Hancock – the notorious Shepherd Bridge crossing of the Maribyrnong River. “It is such a ratty piece of tar there. When you’re passing someone it’s very tight and you’ve got trucks shooting down the road — that is one thing we would all like to see fixed,” she says. Maribyrnong Council will host a free Ride2Work breakfast at the corner of Moreland and Napier streets, Footscray, from 7.30-9am next Wednesday. Police will also be engraving bikes to increase the chance of retrieving one if stolen.

THE Footscray Senior Citizens Centre club is at risk of folding unless a permanent new home can be found. The club was forced last September to relocate to Maribyrnong from its Buckley Street, Footscray, home of 35 years to make way for two new railway lines as part of the $5.3 billion Regional Rail Link project. Declining membership and the difficulty of reaching the temporary centre in Maribyrnong are all putting a question mark on the club’s survival. President Ellen Fleming (pictured) says morale among members is the lowest she has seen in her time with the group, many of them life-long Footscray residents. “I have lost members over this. The council has spent a lot of money down at this centre, but to my club members it is not Footscray.” The council received $5.8 million from the Department of Transport at the time of the compulsory acquisition last year — $4.2 million

‘Act now’ to control retirement choices

Seniors confirm: no place like home BY BENJAMIN MILLAR

A FOOTSCRAY service provider is urging people to plan for their retirement and beyond to avoid difficult choices as they get older. Annecto chief executive Estelle Fyffe says Seniors Week (until this Sunday) is a good time for people to start thinking about how they will protect what’s important to them in their senior years. “Whether these roles are around their relationship, career, interests or sexuality, potentially any person is at the risk of losing control of who they are as they get older.” Annecto president Dr Stephen Duns says people should seek an advocate who can confidently represent their preferences should the need arise. “A person’s identity can get lost once the need for support arises.” Resident Maria, who has been with her partner Rhonda for 12 years, says she would like to continue to live in her own home but is aware things might not go to plan. “It’s not so much the thought of having to seek support or be in supported accommodation as an older person, for example, that worries me. I am very unhappy at the prospect of not being able to live with my partner or not feel safe enough to acknowledge my sexuality.”

for the site, $1.6 million to renovate the former Maribyrnong RSL building in Raleigh Road and $40,000 for bus transport to the centre. The Raleigh Road building was said to be a temporary home “for a period of two to three years” until the council develops a new, permanent home in central Footscray. Council community well-being director Arden Joseph said the council was in the early stages of finding a site for a new community hub in Footscray that would include senior citizens services. Mrs Fleming said council staff had been supportive, but the clock was ticking. Her members, in their 70s, 80s and 90s, feel like they’ve been shunted out of sight and forgotten. “Not one councillor has come in and asked our members how they feel. ‘‘I think this is deplorable. It’s a very unfair situation and they are being treated like little children. “We have lost about 18 members and if we are not back in Footscray by this time next year I don’t know who will be left.”

Sophie’s world One day when Sophie woke up the world had slightly less colour in it. She tells Robert Fedele her engrossing story of what happened next.

INSIDESTORY

T

hey had spoken about it for months. On and off and then constantly. Day by day the conversations began to grow in intensity and certainty. From the beginning, Sophie had absorbed and accepted the messages, but only ever reluctantly. Now it seemed inevitable. A date had been set and was fast approaching. And then she made the call that would save her life. ‘‘At one point I just said to myself, If I don’t tell somebody this is happening right now I’m going to be dead next week. And that’s not what I really want from life. I don’t want to throw my life away at 15. Someone needs to come and help me.’’ Sophie is sitting cross-legged in a worn grey lounge chair in a tiny interview room at Orygen Youth Health in Parkville, a leading mental health service for people aged 15-25. She sports ripped black stockings, a designer white T-shirt and a black hoodie. She’s neither shy nor confident, and answers questions with composure and intelligence. When she smiles she reveals a line of sparkly braces. At 16, Sophie seems every bit the normal teenager. But in the next half hour she reveals her battle with depression and anxiety and the deterioration which led to psychosis and voices in her head urging her to take her own life. There were no warning signs as such, Sophie explains. She grew up in Williamstown with her two parents and older sister and attended a private girls school in Melbourne. The signs of depression and anorexia surfaced when she was 11 or 12, coupled with bullying at school and an innate sense of feeling different and unworthy. But Sophie is still uncertain about the specific triggers that led to her feeling unwell. ‘‘It was just sort of one day I woke up and the world had slightly less colour in it and I just wasn’t happy any more.’’ When Sophie was 12 she began seeing counsellors to try to unravel the reasons behind her ‘‘sickness’’. ‘‘I would just sit there and refuse to speak,” she recalls. “I just refused to let the help in and it was never going to work for me. ‘‘Some places made me feel like I needed to feel ashamed of what was going on in my head.’’ Even family and friends were brushed aside as Sophie felt more and more like an outcast. ‘‘I did have support,” she says, “but it didn’t feel like it. I became quite blinded to all the good things in the world as well as my relationship with my parents and my friends. I would slowly withdraw and push everyone away. I was on this mission to make myself sick without realising it.’’ In 2010, when she was 14 and in year 9 at

high school, Sophie started an online blog which she describes as a personal diary of rants from her thoughts and emotions. Writing was her one outlet, and it did plenty of good. Some of the bullying stopped, Sophie says, because people realised ‘‘there was a reason I was like that’’. At one stage the blog had 4000 weekly readers. More than anything, though, it gave her a chance to reach out. Sophie doesn’t remember when the conversations began. But she remembers when it all came to a head. It was in the middle of last year that the voices and visions became stronger and more frightening. They were telling her to kill herself. And they’d even given her a date to do it. Sophie finally summoned the courage to contact Headspace, Australia’s national youth mental health foundation. Headspace referred Sophie to Orygen and a doctor visited her for two weeks before the ‘‘date’’. On the day she was meant to kill herself she was under hospital supervision at Orygen’s inpatient unit in Footscray. ‘‘The support there was really great. It didn’t become easy ... at all. But I gave my trust to Orygen and committed to making myself better.’’ Sophie began her recovery by going on antipsychotic medication for six months but found that wasn’t for her. ‘‘It was working but I didn’t enjoy it,” she says. “I didn’t like the way that I felt on it.’’ After increased support from doctors and counsellors, Sophie slowly started getting better. Three months later the voices disappeared. It’s been a year since the psychosis. She is no longer on medication but visits Orygen once a week to talk to her case manager. She also visits a separate doctor to monitor her weight. She moved out of home six months ago and is living in a share-house in Footscray and working in retail. While her period of darkness is by no means over, she feels a sense of the tide turning. Does she feel herself again? ‘‘Definitely. I sort of described it through my writing at the time as watching myself lose reality. I knew the things I was hearing weren’t real, but I was so terrified of what would happen if I went against them. It was the worst torture in the world.’’ Through her involvement with Orygen, Sophie recently became part of its platform team, where young people who have used the service take a role in shaping how it can be improved for others. Youth participant co-ordinator Melissa Thurley says 25 young people in ‘platform’ contribute their experiences.

‘‘It’s really important for young people when they come to a service like this to know that their input and their feedback and their ideas can shape how we actually deal with the services for young people,’’ she says. Asked why she’s chosen an active role in helping others, Sophie says one of the major reasons was trying to change people’s perceptions. ‘‘I present myself now as a normal 16-yearold going about doing my thing and I think it’s really important for some people to realise that mental illness doesn’t define a person. It doesn’t set them apart. It doesn’t make them weird or abnormal. I’m just who I am and this is something that I’ve been through and this is how I got through it.’’ Rates of suicide in young men increased from the 1970s to the middle 1990s before declining. Rates for young women have been fairly steady. While the numbers of deaths and rates are relatively low, suicide is still the biggest cause of death in young people. In 2010, 24 per cent of all deaths among men aged 15-24 were due to suicide. For women, suicide comprised a higher proportion of total deaths in younger age groups compared with older age groups. ‘‘I think at the end of the day, statistics speak for themselves,’’ Thurley says. ‘‘We lose two and half thousand people every year and it averages out to something like six people every day. We need to talk about it. It’s horrific.’’ Sophie agrees and has no apprehension about talking about the taboo topic. A year on from her ‘‘episode’’ she feels lucky not to have become another statistic. ‘‘That was one of my driving forces for contacting Orygen, thinking that I don’t want to just be that girl that killed herself at 15 or 13 or 14 or whatever. I wish somebody had said that this is a normal thing and what hundreds and thousands of people go through every day.’’ It’s both scary and heartening to think that someone as young as Sophie can go through so much and come out the other side. Still 16, she has her life ahead of her and dreams of becoming a journalist; something combining her love of music and writing. She has found ways to deal with her bad days and not breaking down over the slightest things. I ask her if she’s afraid of the future, of becoming ill again? ‘‘Not really. The future can’t possibly be as bad as my past. But I wouldn’t change anything. It’s sort of made me who I am.’’ • October 7-13 is Mental Health Week, which coincides with World Mental Health Day on October 10. For more information, visit mentalhealthvic.org.au

The world is a dark and heavy place tonight. Where smiles are extinct. The only truth is in the lies, and everything is broken. The empty streets are cold and littered with broken hearts. As the wind carries away her weak, soft sobs. The loneliness is cold the air is dead. The cobblestone streets crumble away with each step Love is not a villain and I am not a hero but we battle and battle, fighting ‘till the death. This road has no way out, nor a happy ending. There is just me, And my breaking heart. Broken, by Sophie, 2010

Lap-Dogs in relay to find a cure CANCER survivors and carers will be leading the charge this weekend for Maribyrnong’s inaugural Relay For Life event at Whitten Oval. The Cancer Council Victoria fundraiser is a chance to to celebrate survivors, remember lost loved ones and fight back against cancer. Relay For Life co-ordinator Amanda Glossop said 268 Maribyrnong residents were diagnosed with cancer last year. Money raised helps support local cancer patients and their families,

including critical research and community education programs. “The Maribyrnong Relay For Life will also be the first opportunity to camp out overnight at Whitten Oval,” Ms Glossop said. Teams of 10 or more try to keep a baton moving around the track for 18 hours from 4pm, Saturday, to 10am, Sunday. Survivors and carers start the event with the opening lap before a celebratory afternoon tea at 4.30pm. More details: relayforlife.org.au or 1300 65 65 85

Mental illness myth exposed BY BENJAMIN MILLAR TWO in three Australians would avoid employing a person with a mental illness, new research has revealed. Commissioned by not-for-profit employment services provider WISE Employment, the research showed half of all respondents believe people with a mental illness would be unreliable and disruptive. WISE Employment is using Mental Health Week (which runs until Saturday) to launch Empowermental, a new campaign to break down stigma in the workplace. Strategy and alliance general manager Matthew Lambelle said the widespread negative perceptions of mental illness did not match reality. “The research reveals an underlying assumption among employers that mental illness will inhibit job performance, when in fact the two are not

linked. A person with a mental illness can be the best person for the job.” Three in four organisations that have employed someone with a mental illness described the experience as ‘positive’ or ‘very positive’. Also as part of Mental Health Week, Western Region Health Centre (WRHC) has been running a series of activities to better help those in need. Chief executive Lyn Morgain said the Better Health Plan in the West showed people in Melbourne’s west experienced higher levels of psychological distress than the state average. “Mental Health Week is all about raising awareness of mental health and well-being, reducing stigma, and supporting those with a mental illness and their carers,” she said. WRHC activities this week include the launch of a ‘young persons’ mental health program’ and a ‘hearing voices group’, both in Hoppers Crossing.

Shooting for the kids Basketball charity Helping Hoops has bounced into the big time as the official charity of the Melbourne Tigers. The partnership, launched at a school holiday tournament at RecWest in Braybrook last Tuesday, represents a win for disabled and disadvantaged children aided by the Helping Hoops program. Tigers head coach Chris Anstey and assistant coach Darryl ‘D-Mac’ McDonald dropped in to watch 40 kids from a refugee background, including Gairges (pictured), play. The NBL legends spoke about their experience and offered advice for achieving success. Helping Hoops runs a regular after-school program for children from a multicultural background in the western suburbs.

These heights a tad shallow HERE is so much to dissect in Emily Bronte’s classic novel Wuthering Heights that a big-screen adaptation is always a challenging task. Oscar-winning director Andrea Arnold (Wasp, Red Road, Fish Tank) seems the perfect choice to tackle this haunting, dark and twisted tale, but the result misses the mark. Arnold focuses on the romance and tragedy of Cathy and Heathcliff, played by unknown actors Shannon Beere and Solomon Glave (pictured). Mr Earnshaw rescues the young Heathcliff from the streets and delivers him into his ‘‘good’’ Christian family, and from this moment the harsh weather conditions and sweeping landscapes of the Yorkshire moors represent his own sense of loneliness and isolation. The stunning cinematography by Robbie Ryan is undoubtedly the film’s strongest element. What isn’t so successful is the decision to use 4:3 aspect ratio, shaky camerawork and very limited dialogue. The scenery demands a wide screen; the windswept landscapes and sound of blustering wind

can hold your attention for only so long. The film also gives far too much time to the early years of Cathy and Heathcliff. By the time we meet the affluent adult Heathcliff — played by James Howson, another unknown actor who incidentally looks nothing like Heathcliff as a child — it’s become all too difficult to connect with the characters. Cathy has retained little of her wild, youthful nature and appears bitter and tortured, having married Edgar from the always sunny ‘‘big house’’ nearby. Heathcliff’s violent and tormented soul is especially difficult to sympathise with. After zeroing-in on the ill-fated romance, the adaptation was never going to have a joyful end, but the final scenes defy the bounds of good taste. If you’re expecting a soft period piece with a fine Hollywood romance, this is not your film.

Club the heartbeat of its suburb he Yarraville Club is no ordinary entertainment destination. It’s a genuine community hub, reaching out to people of all ages and interests — from children to senior citizens — and transcending the stereotypical gaming venue in so many ways. It’s the kind of place that provides space for people to gather for a meal, support a charitable cause, hold a wedding, watch sporting events, be thoroughly entertained, take a salsa class, shoot some pool, join a children’s chess club or meet with friends in cosy nooks. Violet Browne, the club’s vivacious promotions manager, says everyone can find something of interest to take part in. ‘‘We have an outstanding calendar of entertainment. The Dave Allen duo will be crooning into people’s hearts on October 14, joined by local Michelle Louise singing classics; the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street dinner and show is on November 3 and Grace Knight’s spellbinding performance on November 23.

T

‘‘And our Melbourne Cup Eve extravaganza promises to be unmissable. Pekish Restaurant will be decked out as a marquee for dressed-up guests to have a pre-dinner tipple followed by a meal, then move to our function room to dance to Itchy Fingers, a fabulously funky band.’’ In keeping with the club’s commitment to community support, 10 per cent of the Cup Eve profits will be donated to charity. This goes hand-in-hand with the club’s backing of sporting groups and other community organisations. For example, the Rotary Club’s toy exchange day (November 10)gets free use of the car park and function room; parents of Downs Syndrome children meet in the function room; and a free discussion about Alzheimer’s disease is being held on October 16. But it’s not all about big events at the club. Between 6 and 9pm on the first Friday each month, the Atrium Bar transforms into an intimate, candle-lit space for friends to meet over

hot nibbles while listening to a cool band. Of course, the club is also home to Pekish Restaurant, serving up dishes a cut above pub grub but wisely retaining family favourites. Children eat free from 5.30-6.30pm, Monday to Friday, and there’s a play area with free WiFi and PlayStations. Great food at Pekish Restaurant is just one of the club’s many outstanding choices.

Bank on broken bus getting fixed BY CAROLE LEVY hen vandals attacked the bus belonging to the Yarraville Special Developmental School, it didn’t take long for someone who cared to step in and help. After reading a newspaper account of the incident, Andy Moutray-Read, chairman of the Seddon Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank, rallied the crew to set up an account and raise funds to buy a new bus. Before they could get started, money was quickly donated to repair the bus so the kids didn’t miss out. Branch manager Graham Evans says this example is just part of the $100,000 that the Seddon branch has ploughed into the community since opening on May 28, 2009. ‘‘We’ve been around for just 40 months and in that time we’ve sponsored or donated to many groups, festivals and organisations in Seddon, Yarraville, West Footscray and Kingsville,’’ Mr Evans said. ‘‘I came to the bank about two years ago from the Commonwealth Bank, where I felt I worked for a big machine. Now I work with purpose and get motivated and enthused about all the ways the bank helps our community.’’ Three cricket, three football, hockey and rugby union clubs — and others — have benefited from the support of the Seddon Community Bank branch. One of the first major sponsorships —ongoing — was the Yarraville Seddon Eagles, who recently won the WRFL division 2 grand final. Another football connection is with the Western Bulldogs’ VCAL Fresh Program. The Fresh community education service supports students who are having difficulties at school and facing the risk of becoming disconnected from education and training altogether. ‘‘We recently contributed $2500 towards myki cards for students, which enables them to travel to school or workplaces to continue their education,’’ says Mr Evans.

Bank on winners: Yarraville-Seddon coach David Connell and captain Beau Guest hold aloft the 2012 grand final cup (above right). Fresh approach: VCAL Fresh Program students are supported by Seddon Community Bank (above left, below) ‘‘We found this to be a genuine need for these kids and it means lack of transport funds can’t be used as an excuse for non-attendance. We’re looking forward to seeing it have a positive impact.’’ Mr Evans says the education sector is a strong focus of support with Yarraville West Primary School a $5000 beneficiary. ‘‘The school had a small unused area that teachers thought would be ideal for an outdoor classroom. ‘‘Windows and doors were built to link a deck to classrooms (which one of the bank’s directors personally constructed) and students can gather under a shady tree to learn. We donated $5000 to cover the cost.’’ Grassroots support will reach further once a new branch of Bendigo Bank opens in Yarraville. A search for new premises is under way and the prospectus launched shortly.

t’s not every day a real estate agency and charity team up for a national event to support women, but that’s exactly what they’re doing this month. Jellis Craig will be displaying pink lady silhouettes at their auctions in support of Australia’s breast cancer awareness month. The estate agency recently raised almost $47,000 for the Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) through the Run Melbourne event. The team is motivated to show its support to Australian women diagnosed with breast cancer and their families. BCNA chief executive Maxine Morand, who is a breast cancer survivor, said she greatly appreciated Jellis Craig’s ongoing support of the charity. ‘‘BCNA’s pink lady silhouette is symbolic of our focus on women diagnosed with breast cancer and all those around her,’’ Ms Morand said. ‘‘By displaying pink ladies at their auctions across Melbourne this October, Jellis Craig is reminding women with breast cancer that

Be tempted by the wide open spaces uyers looking for larger blocks of land in Melbourne’s west will find them at Forsyth Park in Truganina. Lots of up to 700 square metres are soon to be released and have already caught the attention of buyers. First-home buyers Emmaline and Josh Coote purchased a block of land at Forsyth Park because of its spaciousness and proximity to the city. And with two boisterous puppies to care for, the couple say they are looking forward to using the park amenities where their dogs can run in the off-lead area. ‘‘We’re so excited about the park precinct. Our puppies will love the freedom to run around. ‘‘We’ve had a look at the plans for the park and it looks fantastic. It’s going to be a great place to walk and relax and we think it will encourage people to get outdoors more,’’ Mrs Coote said. The couple previously lived in Point Cook, where, they say, a trip to the freeway could take up to half an hour in peak hour traffic. ‘‘Working in the city, it’s important for us to have easy access to public transport, so we were keen to find a community that was close to the

Think big: Emmaline and Josh Coote are happy with the abundance of space at Forsyth Park, pictured left. freeway and rail network,’’ Mrs Coote said. ‘‘Forsyth Park will be so close to Williams Landing and the new train station. We’ll be able to walk to the train of a morning, which is great.’’ She said they did their research and were impressed with Forsyth Park’s value for money and its proximity to shops.

‘‘It’s very affordable, in a great location and well-connected to services.’’ Prospective buyers keen to reserve a larger lot in the estate can register their interest for the limited land release. For more information, visit their website or sales office, or call Oliver Hume.

MOTORING ●

Audi’s hottest machine unleashed Ewan Kennedy and Derek Ogden road test the stunning RS 5 ate last year, the Australian motoring media was let loose in a range of coming new Audi models, including a special limited edition of the RS 5 coupe. The standard variation of the Audi RS 5 has been our review car all week and, like its ‘limited’ brother, it’s a high-performance German machine guaranteed to bring a big smile to the face of any keen driver. The tall, single-piece radiator looks as though it takes in more cool air than the Vienna Boys Choir in an Alpine concert. The 19 or 20-inch wheels wouldn’t look out of place on a Ben Hur chariot; twin elliptical exhaust ports look about the size of a ship’s funnels and create a stirring fanfare from the booming V8. A worked version of Audi’s 4.2-litre V8 engine produces a stirring 331kW of power and the RS 5 takes advantage of Audi’s seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro allwheel drive with self-locking centre differential and torque sharing on all four wheels. In addition, there’s a sport differential for variable distribution of power between the rear wheels.

L

All of this geared technology is enough to get the Audi RS 5 to 100km/h from rest in just 4.5 seconds, no mean feat for a vehicle weighing on the high side of two tonnes if a couple of big Aussie blokes are on board. Top speed is normally electronically limited to 250 kilometres an hour. We are told 280km/h is available on request to Audi if the engineers there are confident in your driving ability. Top speed is irrelevant off the race track in Australia, but the smooth and instant power delivery adds driver confidence when overtaking on country roads or merging onto motorways. Brakes feature internally ventilated discs. Callipers are painted high-gloss black. During our time with the ultra-hot Audi RS 5, fuel consumption ranged from 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres in highway cruising to 18-plus litres per 100 kilometres in stop/start city traffic. Audi RS 5 is a stunner of a coupe both in looks and actions, displaying all that Audi stands for in style and automotive technology. At $161,400 plus on-roads, it’s not cheap.

Instant power: There’s no mistaking the sporting intent of the Audi RS 5 coupe.

Golf through the years Ewan Kennedy in Wolfsburg, Germany, goes back in history to the current generation Golfs it coincided with over many years. The VW Citi was sold over about 25 years after the first Golf was discontinued everywhere else and with upgrades to the mechanical systems to keep it up to date on driving and emissions regulations. In the meantime, Volkswagen has sold about 25 million Golfs, making it by far the most successful model ever produced. Volkswagen came up with a more formal arrangement for a number of Aussie journalists. We were in Germany to carry out the first road test reviews of the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf. We had arrived in the country of the car’s birth a few days ahead of the global launch, and Volkswagen brought several examples of previous generation Golfs from the company’s museum for us to look over in detail. The original Golf is significantly smaller than any of the other models. Although each new one, seemingly inevitably, is larger than the one it superseded, the size differences aren’t all that great. Some of the extra size in the newer Golfs is taken up to provide occupant, and later pedes-

couple of years back while attending the international launch of the Volkswagen Amarok pick-up in South Africa, I managed to score a test drive of an almost new, very old Volkswagen Golf. That seemingly contradictory drive was due to the fact that a model called the Volkswagen Golf Citi, a mildly upgraded Golf Mark 1, was still being built in South Africa as a low-cost option

Again, the Golf Mk 1 has quite a difference in styling to the ones that succeeded it, with sharp lines and a real character in the shape. From the Golf 2 onwards, there’s an obvious similarity in appearance on the outside. The one feature that all cars, including the Mk 1, do have in common is the distinctive dog-leg

Wolves swing and miss BY LANCE JENKINSON UNDISCIPLINED Williamstown Wolves were rocked 5-1 by a fearless Werribee Giants, spearheaded by young starting pitcher Chris Webb, in the Baseball Victoria summer league division 2 at Greenwich Reserve on Saturday. For the past six weeks, new Wolves coach Dean Marnell has demanded patience in the batters’ box and a team that values keeping the ball in play above all. But too often at the weekend they swung recklessly for the fences and it cost them dearly at crucial times. In three separate innings, the Wolves had bases loaded and failed to get runners across the line. ‘‘It was disappointing not being able to get those runners in,’’ Marnell said. ‘‘We didn’t hit to our strengths.

‘‘Offensively, we’ve got a lot of work to do.’’ Marnell hopes it’s a one-off — an aberration. He has been nothing but impressed with the attention to detail of his players during the preseason, describing them as ‘‘sponges’’ for information. But he won’t turn a blind eye to a game he said was ‘‘one that got away’’, despite acknowledging the tremendous performance of Giants’ left-arm starter Webb. ‘‘All credit to him, he pitched well,’’ he said. ‘‘When someone is throwing well, it is the batter’s job to make adjustments. ‘‘He controlled the game.’’ Speaking of pitching, the Wolves have an abundance of quality arms to turn to this season. The rotation got even stronger in the past week with the signing of Josh

Lee from the Geelong Baycats. Lee came in at relief and was strong in a short stint on the mound. New recruit David Asp has produced two quality outings as the Wolves’ starter. Jason Lester is another top-line pitcher awaiting his turn for a start. ‘‘We’ve probably got the best pitching depth in the competition,’’ Marnell said. ‘‘We can call on about six pitchers.’’ The Wolves, widely touted as a title contender, will be tested when they travel to Fitzroy on Sunday. Meanwhile, the magic number for the Newport Rams is 14. The young team, coached by Grant Weir, has won its opening two games and scored a massive 14 runs in both outings. On Sunday, it was a 14-3 thrashing of the Moorabbin Panthers on the road at AW Oliver Reserve, which leaves the Rams as one of only three undefeated teams after two rounds. They can extend their streak when they host winless Port Melbourne at KC White Reserve on Sunday. Division 2 Firsts: Williamstown 1 lt Werribee 5; Moorabbin 3 lt Newport 14 Reserves: Williamstown 7 d Werribee 2; Moorabbin 4 d Newport 0 Thirds: Williamstown 9 d Werribee 5; Newport 20 d Moorabbin 2 Fourths: Williamstown 11 lt Werribee 18; Newport 6 lt Moorabbin 12 Division 3 Firsts: Ormond Glenhuntly 6 d Footscray 3 Reserves: Ormond Glenhuntly 6 lt Footscray 15

New test among the tall poppies ASIDE from cross-country commitments, Western Athletics has spent the winter basking in the afterglow of last season’s Athletics Victoria Shield women’s division 2 title. When Saturday comes, the fruits of its labour from the last campaign will be realised when it lines up in the north-west region’s top division. ‘‘To win a state title was pretty big,’’ club president Adrian Jeffkins said. ‘‘We’re a fairly young club compared to some of the more traditional athletic clubs. ‘‘For us, it’s a big deal to be going up to division 1.’’ Jeffkins has taken over from Stuart

Macauley as president at Western Athletics. He inherits a club going through a ‘‘growth phase’’, one that is trying to capitalise on the growing population of Melbourne’s west. In an exciting development, the club will have an over-40s women’s team for the first time. ‘‘The culture of the club is very strong,’’ Jeffkins said. ‘‘It’s very welcoming and that’s one of our strengths. ‘‘We’ve got a lot of parents involved actually competing. ‘‘They’ve either come back to athletics or tried it for the first time.’’ One of the athletes to watch this season is Morgan Mitchell. The

400-metre specialist recently represented Australia at the world junior championships in Spain where she achieved a semi-final finish. ‘‘She’s very talented,’’ Jeffkins said. ‘‘She had a bit of a break from athletics and came back last year and found herself representing Australia. ‘‘She’s now been selected as part of a Commonwealth Games training squad.’’ Others to watch include Amy Cashin, Luke Searle, Andrew Gavaghan and Chris Camilleri. The track and field season begins on Saturday at Meadowglen International Athletics Track from 1.30pm. — Lance Jenkinson

Dad’s gift: Lachie Hunter is put through his paces at the NAB AFL draft combine. Picture: Ken Irwin/The Age

Son of a gun in kennel BY LANCE JENKINSON WESTERN Bulldogs have snared another son of a gun. Lachie Hunter, the son of 130-game defender Mark, will move to the kennel under the father-son rule. The Bulldogs surrendered third round pick 46 in the AFL national draft after North Melbourne signalled its intentions to take the Western Jets product with its pick, 11 spots higher. ‘‘We’re thrilled to acquire Lachie,’’ Bulldogs recruiting manager Simon Dalrymple said. ‘‘Obviously his father was a very good player for the Bulldogs. ‘‘We think that Lachie, with the season he’s had to date, has been really impressive. ‘‘We think as a forward and a midfielder he can add something to our group.’’ Hunter was a highly rated junior. He played for Vic Metro at the under-18 national championships and had a solid TAC Cup experience. His bread and butter is his ability to win the ball in traffic in the midfield, but he also impressed pinch-hitting as a dangerous crumbing forward.

Hunter, 17, 181cm and 78kg, was rapt to hear the Bulldogs commit to him with the third-round selection. ‘‘It’s a huge honour to play at the club where dad played,’’ he said. ‘‘I really can’t wait to get started. I’m looking forward to it.’’ The Bulldogs already have three father-sons on their books. Mitch Wallis, Tom Liberatore and Ayce Cordy have followed in their fathers’ footsteps. In another trade development, the Bulldogs have been in a transition period since Brendan McCartney’s arrival as coach. They sped up the process hours after the father-son bidding with the trade of veteran fullback Brian Lake and pick 27 to Hawthorn in exchange for picks 21 and 41 in the national draft. The Bulldogs have a war chest of draft picks, including three first-round selections barring any further trades, in what shapes as one of the most important drafts for the club in years. Meanwhile, captain Matthew Boyd claimed his third Charles Sutton Medal as club best-and-fairest with 168 votes, ahead of Ryan Griffen (150) and Liam Picken (110).


A double for Jolley INSPIRATIONAL leader Ben Jolley has claimed back-to-back Gerry Callahan medals for best-and-fairest at the Williamstown Football Club. Jolley, one of the premier onballers in the Victorian Football League, was a comfortable winner with 75 votes. He finished ahead of roaming tall James Wall (55) and fellow onballer Brett Goodes (53). Matthew Cravino claimed the top gong in the development league with 63 votes, from Michael Fogarty (54) and Kwame McHarg (49).

Rain a mixed blessing

Death rattle: Footscray Edgewater boom recruit Wes Robinson looks on helplessly from the non-striker’s end as his captain Dean Russ is bowled. Picture: Ari Hatzis

FOOTSCRAY Edgewater’s short trip to Essendon for the Victorian Premier Cricket season-opener was one of three first XI games called off prematurely due to rain. It was probably a good thing for the Bulldogs, who made a shaky start with the bat as the Bombers claimed the early honours. The Bulldogs were in a spot of bother on 4-63 after 23 overs when the umpires called a halt. The Bulldogs will play their home opener against Prahran in a one-day game at Merv Hughes Oval on Saturday.

Cameron star among Stars in title clincher BY LANCE JENKINSON JESS Cameron is on top of the world. The Williamstown-born 23-year-old top-order batsman lifted Australia to a four-run victory over the old enemy England in the ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup final in Sri Lanka on Sunday. Cameron was player of the match in the final for her brilliant knock of 45 off 34 balls. The Werribee resident produced a masterful innings with strong hitting both sides of the wicket. She had a hint of the unconventional at times, keeping the fielders on their toes and the crowd entertained. A perfectly executed reverse paddle-shot off middle stump brought up triple figures in the team total. Cameron was out lofting the ball to long on, but not before setting the Southern Stars, as the women’s national team is known, on their way to an imposing 4-142 off their 20 overs. A 51-run third-wicket partnership with veteran Lisa Sthalekar consolidated the innings. ‘‘Lisa and I at the time spoke about rotating the

strike and the boundaries would come after that,’’ Cameron said. ‘‘I think we did that really well and were fortunate enough to find enough boundaries.’’ Cameron had a slight scare in the field. She battled on after being hit on the knee by a fiercely hit shot from England captain and player of the tournament Charlotte Edwards. ‘‘The knee is OK,’’ Cameron said. ‘‘I didn’t give Charlotte credit enough on how hard she can hit the ball. It got me right on the point, but it’s all right now.’’ The Stars were seemingly coasting to back-toback T20 titles until England mounted a late charge. They held on for dear life, restricting England to 9-138. Cameron received the player of the match spoils from former England men’s captain and cricket commentator Nassar Hussain. She finished with six sixes for the tournament and Hussain asked what was the secret to her big hitting. ‘‘Maybe I’m just bulking up in the gym or something,’’ Cameron quipped, ‘‘or maybe it’s the bat I use.’’

League flags campaign to keep whistleblowers in fold THE Western Region Football League has appointed a new umpires director for next season as the league aims to shore up its record number of umpires. Former AFL field umpire Mark Westgarth will take the role for three years, with the aim of continuing to increase umpire numbers and provide an extra focus on retention and training. The league has more than 300 umpires involved on weekend match days, a figure boosted by a recent

increase in junior females taking up the whistle for the first time. WRFL chief executive Bob Tregear said the appointment was a proactive step. ‘‘Mark’s background in both umpiring and the western suburbs makes him a perfect fit for the role. ‘‘He has already had a great impact with our umpiring academy at MacKillop College, and through his teaching role he has significant experience working with our key demographic of new umpires — teenagers.’’

Westgarth, who umpired 74 AFL (then VFL) games from 1982-86, before becoming a teacher, said retaining umpires would be his initial focus. ‘‘The WRFL umpiring body has grown significantly in the past three years. And I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved in that growth with my involvement with the MacKillop academy. ‘‘We’ve had over 150 umpires go through the academy in the past four years. However, we’ve only retained

around 30. We also now face the challenge of developing our crop of young umpires into established senior WRFL umpires.’’ Meanwhile, Spotswood playercoach Chris O’Keefe has won the Barry Priest Medal as best and fairest in the Western Region Football League division 1. O’Keefe, widely regarded as the premier onballer in the competition, carved up opposition midfields this season.

He won with 25 votes, four ahead of Altona midfielder Travis Lunardi and Deer Park crumber Kevin Klix. Parkside forward Robert Ford was a convincing winner of the division 2 best and fairest, finishing on 19 votes. Altona veteran Brett Miller won the division 1 reserves medal by a whopping 16 votes, while there was a tie in the division 2 reserves count with Braybrook’s Paul May sharing the spoils with Yarraville-Seddon’s Mohammad Allouche.
